After three weeks attached to the International Space Station, the SpaceX Dragon cargo ship was unberthed and released by Expedition 35 Flight Engineer Tom Marshburn March 25 using the Canadarm 2 robotic arm from a workstation in the station’s Cupola. After moving a safe distance away from the station, Dragon performed a deorbit burn to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere for a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean west of Baja California. Dragon was launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket March 1 from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., arriving at the station on March 3 with supplies and vital science experiments. Dragon returned to Earth laden with a cache of scientific samples for analyses by researchers.
